Great for Video


This is definitely a 5 star camera strap. I shoot mostly video with my Canon 5DIV and I use my camera strap around my neck to help stabilize hand held panning shots. I was nervous about a bottom mount strap because I thought it might make the camera point downward. Turns out the bottom mount makes smooth shots easier than the stock Canon strap. Additionally the quick twist in mount makes it easy to take the strap off and on when using a gimbal. I highly recommend this strap.

Quick-release clip not up to snuff


I love this camera strap for its comfort, convenience and ease of use. However, the quick-release clip does not support heavy equipment and poses a serious risk to your gear if it fails. My usual gear consists of a Canon 5DIV with motor and Canon 35-350L zoom. On a recent trip to New Zealand, I was shooting in a National Park. Suddenly, the quick-release clip unexpectedly opened. My equipment fell but I was fortunately able to catch it on the way down, saving the day. Upon closer examination, one of the plastic male connectors on the clip broke off. Being far from any camera shop, I found a hardware store and purchased 2 cheap adjustable stainless steel hose clamps. I snapped the quick-release clip together then undid the hose clamps and threaded and tightened them around the circumference of the quick-release clip. Since then, my camera strap has been a constant and dependable asset. No more worries about camera weight and quick-release clip failure.
